Item Description...
Ten-year-old Fred (short for Frederika) narrates the story of school and village life among the Athapascans in Alaska during 1948 when Miss Agnes arrived as the new teacher.

Publishers Description
It's 1948 and ten-year-old Fred has just watched her teacher leave -- another in a long line of teachers who have left the village because the smell of fish was too strong, the way of life too hard. Will another teacher come to the small Athabascan village on the Koyukuk River to teach Fred and her friends in the one-room schoolhouse? Will she stay, or will she hate the smell of fish, too?

Fred doesn't know what to make of Miss Agnes Sutterfield. She sure is a strange one. No other teacher throws away old textbooks and reads Greek myths and Robin Hood. No other teacher plays opera recordings, talks about "hairy os," and Athabascan kids becoming doctors or scientists. No other teacher ever said Fred's deaf older sister should come to school, too. And no other teacher ever, ever told the kids they were each good at something. Maybe it's because Miss Agnes can't smell anything, let alone fish, that things seem to be all right. But then Miss Agnes says she's homesick and will go back to England at the end of the year. Fred knows what this is about: Just when things seem to be good, things go back to being the same.

How Fred and her friends grow with Miss Agnes is the heart of this story, told with much humor and warmth by Fred herself This is a story about Alaska, about the old ways and the new, about pride. And it's a story about a great teacher who opens a door to the world -- where, once you go through, nothing is ever the same again.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent!  Jun 3, 2008
It was a great book because it explained the days they spent with Miss Agnes, their substitute teacher, and how much fun they had with her. The story took place in 1948 in a school in Alaska. All the teachers before Miss Agnes didn't understnd the kids in the village, but Miss Agnes did. She taught them all kinds of new things like reading maps, and wrote books for each student to read. In the end, Miss Agnes became not a substitute teacher, but their regular teacher for another year. Sydney, 3rd Grade.
Becoming an elementary teacher?  Feb 8, 2008
For those interested in teaching in elementary school, you and your students will enjoy this heart-felt book!
Inspiring novel   Feb 13, 2007
I had to read this book for one of my early childhood classes. I absoulutly loved reading the story. I think so much information on teaching can be gained from some of the habits that Miss Agnes had. She shows her true love for the job and the children. It inspires me to be a better teacher!
a wonderful gem!  Nov 13, 2006
An excellent book for children which won't take long to read. Large print and easy words. However the message is deep and is excellent material for group discussion. The story itself deals with a group of children who have a perception of their own worth as presented to them by adults unwilling to challenge the status quo. Another adult enters their world who challenges their thinking and directs them to dream big dreams and reach for the stars. A good lesson for children, an even better one for adults.
The Year of Miss Agnes is an okay book  Dec 16, 2005
The Year of Miss Agnes is an okay book.It is an okay book because it tells about a new teacher who comes to Alaska all the way from England.She teaches a class that has different age groups but there is not another school down where they live.The thing that I liked the least was that it was not that exciting and it did not have any parts that came on strong!The thing I liked best about this book was that it kind of relates to real life.The people in the town had lived in another village but they had to move to where they live now!Hope you read the book!
